    I would suggest you get a load of quotes before you go so, if you do make the purchase and want to drive it home, you can just call up a quote and pay on line.

    If you collect it within office hours most insurance companies will give instant cover over the phone or on the net.

    Edit ....good advice above.

    The motorhome must have its own insurance. Unless your business has a motor trade policy that covers you.

    Some insurance companies may well be open for business on monday.

    The vendor may have the van insured at the moment and may keep it insured until you can get it fully insured.

    You could also get online quotes, as soon as you accept a quote and pay, you are insured.
    Just do your homework beforehand and have a couple of quotes ready to go.
    I wouldn't rely on the vendor keeping it insured for you. I wouldn't be happy doing that, if something happens and you need to claim, it will affect their ncb.

    Will you not have to tax it as well? This can be done on line of course.

    If you're thinking of viewing, negotiating & driving it back all the same day - have you thought about how you'll pay for it?
    Another can of worms...

    When we bought our latest car, the dealer needed OUR Insurance in order to Tax it for you on the day.

    Yes I forgot this scam by the DVLA, as soon as the V5 is signed the road fund licence ceases, no longer, oh it taxed for x number of months.

    Personally, go take a good look, if you then like the van, then leave deposit and then get all the tax and insurance thoroughly sorted before returning to collect, not worth all the stress and hassle trying to do it all days especially on a bank holiday, plus makes the collection more enjoyable even if it means another journey !

    @Luvin156 We traveled from N.Ireland to yorkshire to buy our MH , and we had two trips for it ,,, 1 to view it and the 2nd to collect it.
    Think how long it has taken you to aquire said money to purchase the MH , andother few days or weeks will make no difference , ofc i know you are like the rest of us and could not wait to get your MH , but its best to do it right. :)
